NYC Police Department to Revoke President Trump’s Gun License

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is reportedly preparing to revoke President Trump’s license to carry a gun, a senior police official told leftist outlet CNN.

Trump’s New York concealed carry license was quietly suspended on April 1, 2023, following his indictment on charges in New York. Two of the three pistols he was licensed to carry were turned over to the NYPD on March 31, 2023. The third gun listed on Trump’s license was “lawfully moved to Florida,” according to the same source.

After Trump was convicted of 34 felonies on May 30, 2024, he could potentially be in violation of multiple state and federal laws if he still possesses that third gun in Florida.

Under federal law, specifically the Gun Control Act of 1968, it is illegal for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to own or possess a firearm or ammunition.

Trump’s only option now is to file a legal petition; if he does not, the NYPD will revoke his license to carry.

 The New York Post reported:

Former President Donald Trump’s license to carry a gun in New York is expected to be revoked after he was convicted of 34 felony counts in Manhattan last week, sources told The Post.

While Trump’s concealed carry license had already been suspended last year, the license will “likely” be revoked by the NYPD unless the president files a legal petition, the sources said on Wednesday.

Under New York state and federal law, convicted felons are barred from possessing any type of firearm, with Trump legally mandated to surrender all weapons to authorities by his July 11 sentencing.

Trump could keep his weapons by applying for a certificate of relief from civil disabilities, but the former president’s legal team has yet to file the petition, sources added.

The NYPD’s Legal Bureau is set to complete an investigation “that will likely lead to revocation of his license,” the senior police official said. However, Trump retains the right to request a hearing to challenge the revocation, according to CNN.

From far-left CNN:

Trump has had a license from the NYPD to carry a concealed firearm for more than a decade, according to multiple law enforcement sources, but because Trump’s application came with a request for confidentiality, they are exempt from public records requests, according to the NYPD’s guidelines and New York state law.

The suspension and pending revocation of his carry license suggests that he maintained his license the entire time of his presidency and after, until he was charged with multiple felonies for falsifying business records in March 2023.

As a former president, Trump has full-time US Secret Service protection.
